Testing the hypothesis of particle dark matter is one of the key
questions in Physics today. While no conclusive experimental evidence
has been found so far, a new generation of experiments promise a big
leap forward in the next decade. Future indirect, direct and collider
experiments will be conjointly in reach to probe the largest part of the
parameter space of weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs), the
long-standing canonical dark matter candidates. By this, a confirmation
or manifest rejection of the WIMP hypothesis is in reach during the next
10 years.

The goal of this symposium is to stimulate exchange between these
various next-generation WIMP searches. Therefore, it brings together
Japanese and international researchers from all relevant experimental
and theoretical fields. These include up-to-date particle and
interaction models, astrophysical constraints, and the status of the
next-generation instruments. Additionally, we aim at a special focus on
the neutrino floor background for future direct searches, and searches
for DM signatures in charged astroparticles. By this, the symposium
helps to foster collaborations and to explore the complementarity of the
different search strategies.

Main Topics:

  • Dark matter theory
  • Collider experiments for dark matter searches
  • Dark matter direct detection experiments
  • Dark matter indirect detection experiments
  • Astrophysical constraints on dark matter distribution
